They must be evaluated at any given time in order to compute lifetime probability of failure. This paper presents an innovative methodology to derive the structure lifetime load effect due to existing traffic using a statistical tool known as Predictive Likelihood. Loss of resistance due to corrosion originated by chloride ingression is also taken into account. Finally the lifetime probability of failure is evaluated via the application of a time-discretization strategy||Funding Details:||Not applicable||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Civil-Comp Press||Copyright (published version):||Civil-Comp Press 2007||Keywords:||Bridge; Structural reliability; Safety; Predictive likelihood; Corrosion; Traffic||Subject LCSH:||bridges--Live loads
